AzM2 Testing Schedule for Grades 3-8

State Testing begins Monday, April 5th. Please make sure students get enough sleep the night before and well fed the morning of their tests.


We are looking for donations for some new basketballs, soccer balls, kickballs, footballs, volleyballs and dodge balls. The equipment is used during recess for all grade levels. Any donations may be turned into the office at any time. If you are able to help out, we would greatly appreciate it!



Thank you to the Murray and Tibbitts Families for such an incredible donation for our students across the campus! Everything will be put to great use. Students are already loving it!
